Trojans advance to Section 1AAAA finals

New Prague scored 19 unanswered points in the second half to claim a 33-13 win over Faribault in the Section 1AAAA semifinals Saturday at Trojan Field.

The Trojans led 14-13 at halftime, scoring on a 62-yard pass from Tim Stepka to Brad Weiers on the Trojans' second play from scrimmage and on a 1-yard run by Nick Zweber. Faribault answered both times with touchdowns, but a blocked extra point by Weiers was the difference at halftime.

In the second half the Trojans' Drew Feuk scored on two big plays. The senior defensive back ran an interception back 62 yards and a punt back 58 yards for two touchdowns. Stepka got the Trojans' final score on an 11-yard run.

New Prague plays at Northfield Friday for the Section 1AAAA championship. Northfield defeated Albert Lea in the other semifinal. Both teams are seeking a return to the state tournament. The Raiders are the defending section 1AAAA champs, while New Prague represented Section 6AAAA each of the last two seasons.
